I just bought walnut locally from a CL ad. It had been in the attic of a barn for 20 years. Was purchased as part of an estate. 2500 bd ft of it. (No I didn’t buy it all.. hehehe) but I got 6/4 walnut for $3.50 a bd ft. A local hardwood supplier wanted $9.50 … so I think I did ok. There’s deals out there and sometimes you just happen upon them.

Oh…. the guy paid $900 for “any wood found in the attic of the barn”. They were standing on 2 feet of junk up there (a hoarder’s house….estate). When they cleaned out that attic he also found 800 bd ft of Honduran Mahogany. And some other stuff. Needless to say he’s making money on his estate purchase. :)
